Emily + Will | Amarillo Backyard Wedding | Kayla Smith Photography
When I was taking his photos right before the ceremony, I asked Will if he was nervous and he said, "No, I'm excited. I'm ready." And then he grinned with confidence and excitement. When I saw his face as his bride walked down the aisle, I knew he was serious. His face was stoic, yet soft. He was calm and he didn't take his eyes off her the whole way. His expression held such surety.
Emily and Will have a quiet sort of love. They don't say much but you can tell they have a mature, serving love. Their sweet, simple backyard wedding took place in Will's childhood home. It was full of personal details - from fully stocked wheelbarrows full of Jarritos soda to the Patagonia-esqe groom's cake - they surrounded themselves only by people they love and things that are meaningful. That's exactly what a wedding day should be.
